  • Hi new to scrolling, not with woodworking though

    I have been a hobby wood worker for about 10 years. My specialty is wood finishing (staining, dyes, and varnishing) but I am looking for new styles of wood working. I love the intricacy that scrolling seems to offer, and this will add another tool to my arsenal of working wood.

    I look forward to taking in the knowledge and skill that any are willing to share.

    Thank you all for your help, and if you have any questions about wood finishing I may be able to assist on several issues.

            I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

            Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

            I did a...

            Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
